Hi Folks,

I'm new to Kali (just an old version on this laptop), and haven't done Linux for awhile. I installed Kali 2020.1 single boot 32-bit on a small Dell 910 netbook. It got through the install (needing b43 wifi sw), but I think it had trouble finding an apt mirror via a hard-wired ethernet internet connection. After installation, it starts up to the command line -- no graphical XFCE. I can ping sites on the internet, so I think my wired connection is functional (but it is a T-mobile link with crappy 700ms+ ping time).

Maybe some software from the internet did not get installed due to the mirror problem? How can I recover from this, and get XFCE running?

Thanks, Reed
